(C) Interior Minister and First Deputy Prime Minister Shaykh
Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah will not attend the February
5-8 Counter-Terrorism Conference in Riyadh. Brigadier General
Khalid Al-Athemi, General Manager of Legal Affairs for the
Interior Minister will act in his stead. According to
Poloff's contact, General Al-Athemi is accompanied by a
Kuwait State Security officer with the rank of colonel (NFI).
No explanation was given for the Minister's absence although
recent MOI actions against terrorist elements in country may
have forced Shaykh Nawaf to keep his focus on internal issues.
